Remember that iCloud won't count music, apps, and books you've purchased through iTunes, the App Store or iBooks against the 5GB. Nor will the 1,000 images in Photo Stream, iCloud's photo-sync service for iOS devices, Macs and Windows PCs.
I know Apple's extended my MobileMe subscription through June 2012, but I'm not happy about the changes. Can I get my money back? Yes. You can cancel your subscription at any time, said Apple, and receive a prorated refund. If you paid the $99 annual fee six months ago, for instance, you'd have $49.50 coming.
But if you do cancel, all your MobileMe services will stop working and your data will be deleted.
Our suggestion: Wait until this fall to cancel -- after you've migrated to iCloud -- so that you can retain your .me or .mac email address, and keep syncing your calendar and contacts.
